Reasons for Exemption
The proposed project is exempt from California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), in that the action is covered by the general rule that CEQA applies only to projects which have the potential for causing a significant effect on the environment and it can be seen with certainty that there is no possibility that the proposed project would have a significant effect on the environment.
